    How does a game like BF4 work on Windows 8 with the new Direct X feature which uses available system RAM when out of native GPU memory?

    I would love to see the performance in a game like BF4 maxed on a powerful card that has 2GB of RAM on Windows 8.

    ffs guys it's MSAA that eats up the memory, just turn it down, I doubt you'll see any difference from x4 to x8 anyways and with MSAA turn of FXAA, it's **** anyways.

    Or just get a higher resolution monitor and ditch AA altogether.

    I highly doubt speed will have much of an impact with games, it's not like DX is great.

    You know higher resolution equals more vram usage and a performance decrease.

    If you're thinking of tiled resources, that's part of DX11.2. BF4 has only been confirmed to support DX11.1

    DICE is also taking advantage of the CPU enhancements that Windows 8 brings. That's why the OS is on the recommend list.

    well, i lacked 1GB on the vram side lelz, i only use 1280 x 1024 native display anyway :O
    (Skyrim maxed at around 1.5-1.8Gb either 1080p or 1280 x 1024, and i doubt i will play this game due to the fact that my internet sucks)

    A higher resolution could be just as performance heavy as MSAA, and there will still be aliasing.

    A slightly higher resolution doesn't make the jaggies disappear.

    Currently running at 2560x1440 and I still prefer 4XMSAA.

    Yes i find that running at 2560*1440 still looks much better with 2xmsaa+2xsgssaa. 4x is too much a performance hit (unless its 30-40 fps which is not even worth turning the pc on for) in some games especially when trying to run near 100 or120fps.
